GUILFORD S GRID ELEVEN
SETS GRUELLING PRACTICE
PREPARATORY FOR TRINITY
CAPTAIN "BLOCK" SMITH'S TEAM
KEEN ON MEETING TRINITY'S
BLUE DEVILS SATURDAY
Through rain and mud the fight
ing Quakers struggle on in their
preparation for the combat with
the Trinity Blue Devils 011 Octo
ber 4th. Inclement weather has
failed to stop practice, for every
afternoon Hobb's athletic field is
the scene of vigorous scrimmaging
between the Varsity and scrub
The Varsity line looks good.
"Block" Smith (capt.) is showing
up in old time form on right
end. Seldom are the scrubs able
to gain ground around "Block's"
end. Right tackle position is still
open to a graduate from the scrubs
ranks. Tew and Lindley are both
showing Varsity mettle. One of
these men will probably fill this
position in the line up against
Trinity. Harrell plays at right
guard and is showing splendidly
the effect of the year's training on
Guilford's Varsity team. Center
is held by Warrick, another de
pendable football warrior, while
left guard position is held by
Neese, Guilford's heavyweight,
who has played one year with
Coach Doak's Varsity spuad.
Left tackle is played by Gray Her
ring. a one vear (letter) man who
is making an excellent showing
this fall. Either Pate, of last
year's scrubs, or Taylor, a new
man will probably start the first
game at left end.
The back field also is display
ing a considerable amount of
punch and pep. Shorty Frazier,
quarterback, Thomas and Casey,
compose the back field. This is
White's first year with the Quakers
but he has had football experience
with the Bailev Military Institute
of South Carolina.
Holt. Hammond, Mcßane.
Hughs, Keen. Isley and Weir, all
second string men, are doing good
work and are Varsity possibilities.

GUILFORD FACULTY TELL
OF TRAVELS IN EUROPE
MMIO. HOFFMANN AND MISS PARKER
RETURN WITH GLORIOUS ACCOUNTS
OF FOREIGN COUNTRIES
By Lucile Purdie
Madam Hoffmann and Miss Eliz
abeth Parker, two members of the
Guilford faculty, are telling enthu
siastically of the trip abroad
which it was their fortune to take
tliis past summer. They travelled
together a great part of the time,
together with Miss Hedwig Hoff
mann former Guilford professor
and Miss Russarh of New York,
separating only when individual
interests invited them.
Madam Hoffmann went alone to
Spain, where she visited her rela
tives. She also saw her old home in
Spain, which is a grand old feudal
castle built in the twelfth century.
\nother visit of interest which
Madam took was to Bilbao, Spain,
where she was given a letter of
introduction to His Excellency Sr.
Cond de Vilallonga, of that city.
She was in San Sebastian at the
same time as the king of Spain.
Madam Hoffmann and her party
literally wandered over western
Europe, traveling extensively in
France, Germany, Switzerland and
Italy. As places of especial beau
ty they named Florence, Nice, and
Venice, all noted cities of Italy,
Strasburg in Germany, and the no
torious Monte Carlo, in southern
France. Tljey saw the famous
leaning tower of Pisa, the Blue
Grotto in southern Italy, and
Mount Vasuvius. Miss Parker

GUILFORD MEN TO HAVE
NEEDED LOUNGING ROOM
NORTH END OF ARCHOALE TO BE
CONVERTED INTO LARGE
No longer will the men of the I
Guilford College campus have to
gather in a bed room for a social
chat or sit oti hard straight chairs
to read a magazine, for soon one
end of Archdale hall will blossom
forth into a club room. It will j
have deeply cushioned chairs,
draperies which present a cozv ,
appearance, a brand new piano, I
magazines and newspapers to read,
and games to play. In other
words, it will be the very thing
ihe hearts of every Guilfordian i
have so long desired.
R. J. M. Hobbs, president of the
Alumni Association, is taking the j
project in hand and has already j
raised nearly half the money re- 1
quired. Every day he receives let- |
Iters which have a substantial con-
I tribution in them. Many come
written in this manner: "Enclosed
find check . If you need more
don't hesitate to call on me," or,
"I am heartily in favor of the idea
and hope many others will re- !
The north end of old Archdale i
jhall will be turned into one large
room except for one small room
j known as the governor's room,
which will be used for committee
t meetings. The stairs which front
!to the north door w ill be torn
away and rebuilt to face the west
door. This will allow 7 the large
j room to extend nearly 40 feet
1 back toward the southern end.
| One alumnus has taken upon him
j self the task of furnishing the
room. This is a very large task for
large, stuffed leather chairs and
[ heavy cushioned sofas are among
j the promised furnishings.
This project is just another evi
j dence of the interest which the
alumni have in Guilford. They
|nre always planning for a bigger
[and better college with all conven
j iences for its students.
GUILFORD ORCHESTRA IS
INCREASED TO 13 PIECES
The first public performance
i of the Virginia Robins, the col-
I lege orchestra, which was given
as an accompaniment to the mov
| ing picture last Saturday night,
came as rather a surprise to most
of the audience. Yes, there is a
[college orchestra, and it is a real
orchestra in spite of the fact that
! there are thirteen members.
Under the direction of Mrs.
| Kohloss, the violin instructor, it is
becoming one of the leading or
ganizations on the hill. There are
several new students who are
members, and there is a prospect
of three or four more. The per
formance given last Saturday night
ran smoothly and showed credit
able work on the part of the mem
bers. Early in November the or
chestra will be heard in a recital
of its own. The repertoire will be
one which any ameteur orchestra
might be proud.
This organization has come in
to prominence only in the last
year or two, and it is hoped that it
will become one of the permanent

News in its issue of Sunday, Sept

sketch of John Thompson Zachary,

"Jonathan Thompson Walton

"Born near Graham, in Ala

KIRSY BOWEN ADDRESSES
STUDENTS ON RELIGIONS
I "The most striking fact in tol
lege life is the ability of the aver
age college student to resist the
J acquisition of knowledge ." was
the quotation with which Rev. Kir
by \. Bowen began his college
chapel talk last Friday morning.
Hie speaker stressed the fact of
man's unchangeable religious de
sires. He asserted this religious
ness is as voluntary as breathing.
"All religions arise,"stated Mr.
Bowen," from the consciousness of
the existence of a Supreme Being.
Man will make a god to worship
if he cannot find one existent. An
example of thi> condition may be
found in the gods of the heathen.
There is no universal religion as
yet. Ihe real Gotl appears in the
midst of a conglomeration of re
ligious ideas. The true religion
must be a logical one —the mind
must be attuned to the infinite.
Fhis religion must be a beneficial
religion must be for the great
est good to the greatest num
ber. The religion must be a per
sonal one. The great problem is
to find out and to know the real
God, to learn his name. Our re
; ligion must be based on revela
tion. reliable and consistent."
Mr. Bowen stated that the pre
ference of the English members
jof the Bible Revision committee
was for the old form "God" and
"Lord" in referring to the Su
Being, while the American mem
bers desired to substitute the cov
enant name of God, "Jehovah."
Since the use of "God"' and "Lord"
rather than "Jehovah" was due to
!Jewish superstition, this change
has been made in the American
j Standard Bible.
THIRTY-TWO COUNTIES REPRESENT
ED ;FKIENDS LEAD IN DENOMINA
TIONAL NUMBERS; METHODISTS
The registrations and the gener
al opening of the first week of this
year was the most promising in
Guilford's history. The total reg
istration up to Saturday the 27th
was 274. This is the largest num
ber of students that has ever been
on the campus at any one time.
And with the possibile exception
of two or three students, all are
graduates of a four year high
school. This year witnesses the
disappearance in reality of the
preparatory department, a goal
the college has constantly held in
view since 1889.
At the close of the first week of
registration, the total was 265,
of which number 143 were women
and 122 were men This fall
short of the famous 1907 registra
tion of 268, which was the largest
in the history of the college. The
total has, sinco the first week,
swelled to 274, which is six more
than the 1907 registration and is
the largest number ever register
ed at Guilford College in one vear.
Last year, the first week's registra
tion totaled 243, while the year be
, fore (1922 ) the total was 228.
Conservative estimate of the total
registration before the year is
complete puts the total np to 285
Thirty-two counties have con
tributed to the enrollment: nine
states other than North Carolina
have sent one or more students.
Ten denominations are repre
sented this year against twelve last
year. Instead of losing in numbers
as they did last year, the Friends
have made a great gain. They
have enrolled 115 this year as
against 90 a year ago. The Meth
odists, all branches, have also
made a large gain, rising from

PROF. L, L. WHITE GIVES
"The purpose of a program,"
said Prof. Lea White, in chapel
Tuesday morning, "is to tone mind
and body. There must be a
proper co-ordination between
mental and physical exercise.
Work may be made more effective
if there is pleasure in tis perform
ance. You are toning up the body
when you get pleasure out of work.
Mr. White stressed a program
of mental hygiene that would have
a tonic effect. The keynote of
this program according to Mr.
White is development and not
Among the rules for mental
health that Mr. White mentioned
was a larger viewpoint. "Educa
tion," said he "must see the har
mony of the world, and strive for
the uplift of the human race."
As another rule he mentioned
the pursuit of a great purpose as
necessary for "A purposeless life
leads to despair and tragedy.'
"Practise mental hardening"
was the speaker's statement of the
third rule. Coupled with this the
speaker mentioned the keeping of
one's poise. "Feel and work to
the end that you have ample re
serve power," said he. "Be able
lo control yourself under diffcult
circumstances. It is not work,
but worry that kills."
The formation of good mental
habits was the fifth well present
As the last rule Mr. White rec
ommended an adequate amount of
sleep, and said "Turn off consci
ousness when vou o to bed."
